Mission Statement

Common Ground is a center for learning and leadership, inviting people across ages and identities to connect to their urban environment, build community, grow into their full potential, and contribute to a just and sustainable world. We work toward this mission through active, authentic learning rooted in justice and our environment: a farm, in a forest, in a city.


Three connected efforts are at the core of Common Ground’s work:

  • The nation’s longest-running environmental charter school, creating the next generation of successful college students and powerful environmental leaders.
  • An urban demonstration farm, modeling practices of sustainable agriculture and contributing to a healthy food system for New Haven residents.
  • A community environmental education center, offering programs that connect people of all ages with the natural world while helping them develop habits of sustainable living.
